Installation issues / Installation Freezes After Selecting Install LinuxMCE
« on: February 22, 2011, 04:36:21 pm »
Hello all.

The Machine:

Intel i3-530 Processor at 2.93GHz
Instruction Set: 64-bit
Intel HD Graphics
2TB Sata HD
HDMI out to TV
SPDIF out to Receiver

The Problem:

Insert the AMD64 CD and boot up gave message about switching from IDE to AHCI in BIOS which I did.
Next boot came to start up menu with three options, Install LMCE, Boot from HD, something else I forgot but not option to run live CD.
Select Install LMCE.
Begins installation and then just hangs. The DVD drive light stops flickering so it's not even spinning I suspect.

Next, I try the 32 Bit installation.
This goes much further but stalls again on a black screen. I cannot see any messages or access any logs.

Next boot off of the 32 bit installation and run Kubuntu off of the live CD. This works ok so now I don't suspect that the Intel HD Graphics are at fault.

This machine is not connected to the Internet at this time. Is that the problem?

I am going to try and install Kubuntu 7.10 first and then see what happens.

Any suggestions? I tried to install with acpi=no noapic nolapic with no result.
